This post is brought to you by the letter “C”!

Now that our babies are 4 weeks old, time to update the blog! I’ll focus this post on Monday, September 20th, 2010- the day our beautiful babies entered the world, via C-Section! (hence the letter “C”)
Nathan and I arrived at KGH Family Birthing Center Monday Sept 20th at 5:30 am. We walked in and the nurses were so excited to see us, our room was ready and waiting and they even had a special message on the board in our room:

Oh….I got ahead of myself šŸ™‚ Here is what I looked like leaving the house that morning…38 weeks prego with the twins…

Ugh,…looks so uncomfortable right? IT WAS!!! Ok…back to getting to the hospital šŸ™‚ We had a great room all to ourselves. All the nurses, staff, doctors…everyone we encountered was so kind and amazing. We just had the best experience! Here’s a few pics of the room….

Getting ready to head into surgery and meet the babies!

Next is the surgery!! It started about 7:50am. It’s amazing…I was numb from my stomach down…but as soon as they pulled the babies out…I felt so much better! It was a great experience and I’m so glad Nathan was able to be in there with me!

Perfect babies!

 After they pulled out Ash…they gave me something to “relax” me…it sure did a dang good job,..I woke up an hour later as they were putting on my bandage…and my husband and babies were gone! Dr. Smith congratulated me and my nurse wheeled me back to my room to recover…which I did quickly! šŸ™‚ They had to make sure the spinal was wearing off in good time before they brought in the babies. Finally around 9:45…I got to hold my precious son and daughter!

After the four of us spent some time together…the grandparents came in. It was a perfect day! The entire stay at KGH was great and we were discharged Wednesday Sept 22nd.
Well,…that’s a brief overview of the day the twins were born…I have a lot more posting to do! This last month has flown by and we are enjoying our family so much! God is good!
I will try to update more often as we establish a schedule šŸ™‚

Press on!
